Good vibes; good beer menu.

This is a quiet restaurant/bar with a good-sized drink menu and great food. Several friends got together and had the crab nachos and a couple beers/drinks. The service was fast and reliable and the food was quite good.

We enjoy going to the Half Moon and always have a great meal. There are exotic game entrees and more common items as well. The bar area is also nice if you are waiting for your table.

I like the Moon to hang out a and have a few drinks with friends. Great selection of wine and beer and the service is outstanding. Atmosphere is appealing...menu is game oriented which I also like, however, the execution of the menu is poor. Taking a bowl of nachos and using elk as the meat then dumping a bunch of... More

We have heard so many good things about Half Moon, my wife and I decided to take my parents there for a late lunch before attending Longwood Gardens. Everything started off good but went downhill drastically. We ordered an appetizer and something from the children’s menu for my son to be served at the sometime. The appetizer came out but... More

I went to Half Moon solely for the beer selection, which did not disappoint. Any place that has Triple Karmeliet is great in my book. The food was a pleasant surprise - everything was really tasty (including the wild game sampler). The waitstaff were good, but service was a little slow. Management ended up giving us a free appetizer while... More

I've been to Half Moon many times over the years, but this was my first lunch-time visit. What a treat. My wife kept it simple -- quiche and a salad, which was a large piece of a well-prepared quiche. I had to choose one of the more exotic game items that Half Moon offers. It was tough to decide, but... More

The half moon we have been to many times. They have very good game dishes and the buffalo burger is one of them. It is a bit noisy and the menus up stairs is different than in the pub. I recommend the pub. They do have a wonderful local and international tap beer selection. If you like new dishes and... More

You start by trying the crab nachos they are unbelievable . The gator gumbo is as close to New Orleans gumbo that we have ever tasted . They have buffalo burgers and mushroom soup that will leave you wanting to come back real soon. A beer selection from all over the world and a rooftop section that lets you see... More

Went here for lunch to celebrate a birthday, service was fantastic, food was delicious, overall great experience. I highly recommend the wild game sampler appetizer as it gives you a good taste of foods I never thought I would eat. Kangaroo was very tasty and tender. I cannot wait to try coming back here for dinner.

We had a bit of a wait, but it was worth it. Everything was delicious and the service was good too. We were a party 7 and they had no problem accommodating us. The beer selection was ample and they put up on the chalkboard all their selections available for that time. Everything we ordered to eat was delicious, but... More
